320. “Hey, I was watching ‘She’s the Sheriff’!”

The episode:The Beatniks,” ep. 415

The riff: Exclaimed by Tom as one of the beatniks switches off the television set a man is watching.

The explanation:She’s the Sheriff” was the name of a fairly short-lived NBC sitcom from 1987-1989. It starred TV star Suzanne Somers inbetween her better known roles in “Three’s Company” and “Step by Step,” which filled most of the 1980s and 1990s. Somers plays a character whose husband unexpectedly dies, leaving her to raise two children. To support them, she steps into his former role of the town sheriff. It was canceled pretty quickly.

Novelty factor: I’m not sure, but I don’t feel like I’ve ever heard of this show before. I used to watch “Step by Step” all the time in the 1990’s though, so I certainly know Somers.
